The death of a 97-year-old man found in his home in East Baltimore has outraged the community. Waddell Tate’s death was ruled a homicide after police found evidence of trauma on his body and signs of forced entry at the back of the home.
Around 6:50 p.m. July 21, family members found Tate’s body.
On Friday, police had very little information to work with and still had not determined a motive in the killing. T.J. Smith, police spokesman, called the killing “absolutely inhumane.”
Smith called on the community to rally together and find the “evil, despicable human” responsible for the killing.
